    This is a series of grade-appropriate activities that are NGSS Aligned to teach about IPM. There is a very nice emphasis on reading — several different stories are included for students to read and make decisions about what pest treatment would be appropriate (if any). Each of the readings has two versions, differentiated by how challenging they are.
    Instructions for teachers are very clear, and the lessons are broken down into steps. There are also helpful tips on common misconceptions students may have.

    Unfortunately, because of the age of the resource, all of the links in the document are broken.
